New Lexus LFA! Hyper-GT Concept Previews Next Halo Model

Creator: Top Gear    Category: Cars, Motors, Vehicles    Added: 04 Mar 2024

As difficult second albums go, creating a follow-up to the mighty Lexus LFA is utterly unenviable. In no small part because that legendary car’s identity consisted largely of its naturally aspirated V10 engine, which made a noise that could make F1 cars blush.

This, the Lexus Electrified Sport concept, won’t do that – but it isn’t stopping Lexus from using it to try and figure out how a future hyper-GT might at least hold a candle to its howling predecessor.

For Lexus, that means creating a connection to the driver. It’s experimenting with manual gearboxes in electric cars, a joyous interaction that flies in the face of the zeitgeist for speed and efficiency. We’re talking trick four-wheel drive too, and steer-by-wire for added agility. Mega four-figure power outputs and silly acceleration are a given, but Lexus is developing a next-generation high-performance battery that will be thinner and lighter too.

Top Gear Magazine's Tom Ford takes a closer look.
